To Live Well is to Hide Well

The most elusive and lethal Political Spy / Assassin of the 20th Century, who has survived undetected until now.

This is the true (NON FICTION) story of the man that Polish and British Intelligence (including Ian Fleming) admired.

    In the newly revised book 'To Live Well is to Hide Well’, tells the true story of the man that helped put the 'action' into Fleming's books about 'James Bond' and shockingly he wasn't even English. Ian did not write his books until long after WW2. However during WW2 he was involved as Assistant to Rear Admiral Godfrey, then NID, and finally in April 1942 liaise with MI6 Section 'D'.
    This is the life of an incredible man - Bronislaw Urbański, who was involved with espionage, assassination and of course his equally famous girlfriend. A beautiful but powerful woman, and so very pivotal to WW2. She was Britain’s top Spy during WW2 in her own right, and Winston Churchill’s most favorite Spy; she was SOE Christine Granville.
She was born Polish, also controlled the Polish 'Muszkieterowie' and Bronislaw as well, what to do and who to go after and kill.
    Bronislaw Urbański had worked with MI6 / MIR Section 'D' - 2 years prior (whilst in Europe) long before Dusan Popov even meets with MI6 in London.

    Bronislaw was also born Polish and he did not know that he was admired by Ian Fleming at all as he had dealt with his older brother Robert 'Peter' Fleming of MIR Section 'D'. It was only in mid 2020, that the author and others, found the photos, especially the interviews by U.K. Historians, information and documents. Together with what his Father had told him and his own notes, it all slowly unfolded.
    By fate his records were 'erased' in London and in Warsaw; all of Bronislaw's Military Intelligence records were either destroyed by the NAZIS in anger during the destruction of Warsaw November 1944. And in London, also as a worried 'Colonel Gano' as the war ends; to stop the Soviets getting ahold of his Polish Intelligence information, 'burns' all documents early 1945. 
    Read about the mysterious death of PM and
Polish General Sikorski, and how his death has been now proven to be an Assassination with tests in Canada with the TRIALS conducted (August 2020).

    London organises who Piotr and Bronislaw were to go after, often top SS NAZIs were their goals, and not always did it go well, and paid a steep price for going after them.
    The information in this book is based upon real evidence and documented confession before death, it is new, factual and supported by many forms of materials and experts. It is completely different to what is known, whether on Wikipedia, History Books, Polish IPN's probe into the crash etc. As the world should know that until now - no one even came close to what really caused the crash of Flight AL-523 of just 16 secs of flight.
    Also we show exclusive photos of MI6 together with Bronislaw, plus other photographs, all taken by Military cameramen - even Joseph Goebbel’s propaganda team. All Verified by U.K. WW2 Historians.
    ‘To Live Well Is To Hide Well’ is the final result of many years of research, winding throughout this very dark world, uncovering what was hoped to be buried deeply in a secret file; after the author hears his father's death bed confessions: of being one of the world’s most feared spy/assassin. Bronislaw one of the highly
mysterious Polish ‘Muszkieterowie', known by his alias the ‘White Ghost’ is James Bond of WWII, and way more complex and coldly deadly!
    The true life story of Polish Super Spy / Assassin - Bronislaw Urbański.

FLIGHT AL-523 CRASH (Sikorski's Plane) - 4th July 1943

Poland's - IPN exhumation of General Wladyslaw Sikorski's body, all those years ago. Was conducted only to see if he was - 'Shot, stabbed or poisoned'. Whilst it has been generally accepted by all that he died as the result of his injuries sustained from the plane crash.

... but what  you did not know was that it was ‘deliberately sabotaged’ by an expert ‘Polish Assassin’. Now the proof  based upon Bronislaw's confession on precisely how, why he and others outsmarted guards on the airstrip; even how the technique used can simply vanish.

This book to further back up the evidence also contains the complete expert Aviation scientific tests and incredible 'August 2020 TRIALS' conducted in Canada proving without doubt the method used was the answer. These TRIALS are totally supported by the very same WW2 U.K. Crash Investigator  who produced the documentary 'Sikorski's Last Flight' who has studied the crash for more than a decade'.

Over the summer I constructed an inexpensive functional full-scale replica cross section of a B-24 Elevator and fixed Fairing. With this replica I was able to simulate and confirm with confidence that your father's sabotage of AL 523 caused the crash and death of General Sikorski. In my opinion and Garth Barnard’s, your father's story and his method are no longer in doubt. It is worthy of serious attention by historians.

WW2 AIR CRASH DETECTIVES : - Investigator of 'Sikorski's Last Flight' 

General Wladyslaw Sikorski and 15 others were killed when the B-24 they were travelling in crashed shortly after take off from Gibraltar very nearly 77 years ago.
The crash on the 4th July 1943, where the pilot, Flight Lieutenant Eduard Prchal, survived, has been the subject of much discussion and debate. I would even go as far to say that this is probably the most talked about crash involving a high profile figure in the history of flight. The conspiracy theories have rattled on for years with the finger of blame, if it wasn't an accident, being pointed in many directions, but now, finally, the truth !

WOW : - Now this makes sense, I have been studying about the Sikorski crash for many years, and I believe it. What an incredible 'account before and during the war....especially those photographs with MI6...

THANK YOU FOR GIVING ME THE OPPORTUNITY : - I have completed reading your book. I found the book interesting. You certainly had a unique relationship with an unusual father. It was interesting to read to first hand accounts of the wartime experiences of a Polish soldier throughout the war, and back in Pol...
